Post ESPN Top 5 burning Questions:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/s...t&lid=tab1pos1

3. Who is the best team in the AFC North?

Allen: It seems strange right now to say this, but the best team in the AFC North is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ignore for a moment that they lost in overtime against the Falcons and think about what this offense has done the past two weeks. They've completely dominated two good defenses with two different quarterbacks. The running game looks refreshed and Ben Roethlisberger and Charlie Batch both have an excellent grasp of this offense and are executing their play calls. This team would beat the Bengals and Ravens with Batch or Roethlisberger leading the way.

Hoge: It's the Steelers in a landslide. They have an excellent blend of offense and defense and are starting to look like the Steelers from last year. This team will be hard to beat down the stretch, even if Roethlisberger has to miss time. Backup quarterback Charlie Batch is more than capable of winning games.

Salisbury: Despite losing Sunday to the Falcons, the Steelers are back and they have fewer questions surrounding them than any other team in the AFC North. The Ravens have trouble moving the ball on offense and even with a good defense, you have to put points on the board in this division. The Bengals are having offensive line issues that have slowed their explosive offense. Cleveland just isn't ready. That leaves the Steelers, who have the right combination of offensive and defensive excellence to contend.

Now THAT'S what I like to hear!! All we have to do is live up to it! :)

I also really like hearing such high praise for Batch.

If they did power rankings like this i'd be alot happier - ie who is the best team - not who is having the best run.

The Steelers have alot of potential, but they are finding new and disastrous ways to lose each week - despite having large parts of their game in good working order.

I guess what the pundits, and myself, see is a team that can still be awesome if they could get all the different parts of the machine to operate on the same day.

At times the D has been awesome, yesterday the offense put up 38 points on the road and looked capable of more.

Even though they have better current record, the Bengals and Ravens appear to suffer from the same faults they suffered from last year - not enough balance between O and D.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Yeah... we need work on the special teams. Anyway, offense and defense are both good and they play to the fullest, which is which we have the vote for the ACF North.
